Preview: Guida vs. Maynard

UFC on FX: Maynard vs. Guida airs TONIGHT at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET

By Anthony Springer Jr.

Tonight at UFC on FX 4, two lightweights always a step or two away from title contention look to take another step up the crowded 155-pound ladder. As the adage goes, styles make fights and the tilt between Gray Maynard (10-1-1) and Clay Guida (29-12) is about as stylistically different as you can get. (more…)

Chisora vows to end Haye’s career

Heavyweight Dereck Chisora says he’ll retire former cruiserweight and heavyweight world champion David Haye when they meet in their grudge fight next month. “I’ll be taking Haye out of the game, this will be his last fight in boxing and he can forgot about fighting any Klitschko again,” said Chisora. “Wladimir played with him for twelve rounds, the difference is I’ll be punishing him for twelve rounds and giving him the worst beating he’s had. I’ll destroy him. He’ll need more than one of his ‘Hayemakers’ to stop me coming at him that night.”

Chisora stated that he refuses to lose to his London rival and that his pride and fighting heart will break Haye down. “There’s too much pride on the line, there’s no way I’m going to lose to Haye. I’m going to break Haye down mentally and physically, he’s all mouth and he now knows that he’s in a real fight against me. What’s he going to do when he lands his best punches and they have no effect and I’m still in his face throwing punches?”

No 2012 WBA KO Drugs in Panama?

By Gabriel F. Cordero
 
A source has told Fightnews.com that there’s a possibility that in 2012 there may be no WBA KO Drugs Festival in Panama for the first time since 2007. WBA Executive Vice President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza will take into consideration the weak attendance at recent boxing events and the lack of strong fighters in the country at the moment. According to the source, Mendoza will have private separate meetings this week with local promoter Rogelio Espiño and Sampson Lewcowicz and next week there could be an official statement about WBA featherweight world champion Celestino Caballero in the situation of his mandatory defense against Mikey Garcia.

There is also a possibility that a WBA KO Drugs event could take place in Jamaica with local fighter Nicolas Walters fighting for a WBA interim title.

Valcarcel: WBO is sure Pacquiao won the fight

WBO president Paco Valcarcel has commented on the panel of five international judges who reviewed the controversial Pacquiao-Bradley fight and unanimously scored it for Pacman. “I respect the scoring of the officials,” Valcarcel told Fox News. “But the WBO is sure that Pacquiao won the fight. The only solution for this is to order a rematch. Top Rank has both fighters so we’ve got arrange to work with both parties and work on a rematch.”

Manny Pacquiao welcomed the news of the WBO’s review, but stated that he wants to win the belt back in the ring, and wouldn’t accept the title if the WBO were to strip Bradley and offer it back to him.

Maynard: Time to get back to work

UFC on FX: Maynard vs. Guida airs TONIGHT at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET

Let’s be honest: professionally speaking, last year sucked for Gray Maynard.

On the first day of the year, the UFC lightweight title challenger carried an undefeated record into the Octagon against champion Frankie Edgar, and used the first five minutes of their contest to batter “The Answer” around the cage at will, coming as close to putting away a fighter as you can without having the bout actually be stopped. One minute later, Edgar bounced back into the center of the cage as if the first round didn’t even happen. . . . Click here for more by E. Spencer Kyle, UFC.com

Josesito: I want to spoil everything for Ortiz

By Francisco Salazar
Photo: German Villasenor

Josesito Lopez has not stepped inside the ring yet against Victor Ortiz. He will do so on Saturday night at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, CA. However, Lopez thinks that Ortiz has landed a significant blow against him within the last couple of weeks. It was not a left cross or right hook by the southpaw Ortiz. Instead, it was the announcement that Ortiz will fight Saul “Canelo” Alvarez on September 15th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. That did not sit well with the normally soft-spoken Lopez, who felt slighted by the actions of Golden Boy Promotions, who promotes Ortiz.

However, Lopez is not going to sulk or complain. Instead, he is preparing for this fight, which he admits is the biggest fight of his career and he is ready to shock the world on Saturday night. (more…)

Famed boxing artist LeRoy Neiman remembered

By Richard T. Slone

I was extremely saddened to get the call that iconic artist LeRoy Neiman had died, aged 91, in New York City. I was first introduced to LeRoy when I was 16 years old through my then boxing trainer Smokin’ Joe Frazier. LeRoy was intrigued that I was an amateur boxer and also an artist. Once he saw my art his eyes lit up and in the many years I’d see him since, he kept up with my career and he always had kind words with sincere encouragement. I know we shared the same passion for boxing and I think he liked that.

LeRoy Neiman loved boxing and boxing loved LeRoy Neiman. He had a great passion for the fight game. He admired boxers more than any other athlete or celebrity and I think his love of the sport is very evident by simply looking at his timeless boxing paintings. (more…)

By Francisco Salazar

Victor Ortiz hopes to return to fighting in the elite bouts that he has fought in and could be fighting in with three months time. Josesito Lopez wants to prove he is an elite fighter, hoping to secure a career-defining victory. While these are different point of views, one thing that Ortiz and Lopez agree on is that their 12 round welterweight bout promises to produce action and fireworks. Ortiz and Lopez will headline a seven-bout card at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, CA. The bout, along with the 12 round junior welterweight bout between Humberto Soto and Lucas Matthysse, will be televised on Showtime.

At the customary press conference on Thursday, both Ortiz and Lopez oozed confidence, eager to get in the ring on Saturday night. Both fighters, along with Soto and Matthysse, were eager to win decisively, not even bringing the judges into play for their respective bouts. (more…)

Rodriguez-Vasquez presser

Photos: Felipe Leon

WBC#6/IBF#9 ranked and current NABF strawweight champion Mario “Dragoncito” Rodriguez (14-6-3, 8 KOs) expressed confidence as he stated he was more than ready to headline this Saturday night’s main event in a ten round clash against the durable Armando “Chiquita” Vazquez (20-8, 4 KOs) of Mexicali, Mexico, at Thursday’s final press conference at the “Perro Salado,” a popular billiards hall and bar in Tijuana, Mexico. The night is presented by Box Latino and held at the Pico Ballroom of the Caliente Racetrack and Casino. The racetrack, once the playground for several Hollywood celebrities after its initial inauguration in the late 1920s.

“I am ready to fight. I want to give a great showing,” Rodriguez of Guasave, Mexico, said. “I haven’t fought in some time and I am anxious to get climb into the ring.”

Rodriguez didn’t mention his opponent who did not make it to the press conference. In his last bout, Rodriguez pulled the upset when he defeated the experienced Gilberto Keb Baas by way of fifth round stoppage on short notice back in February. (more…)
